Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

I have a problem that I am afraid could cause me to have an accident. Just a few months after purchasing my 2010 Toyota Avalon I started having this problem intermittently. Sometimes it kind of stalls. Usually happens when I am turning from a complete stop, such as turning right or left. It is as though my car stalls for a moment. I give it gas, but it doesn't do anything for a few moments. Usually around 15 to 20 mph. If iam pulling out in front of traffic I almost get hit. Recently I was on the highway, I just pulled out and was going approx. 40 mph and it stalled for a few moments, maybe less than a minute. If a car had been behind me I would have been hit. Each time I told the service advisor @ the dealer I was told they had to be able to duplicate this. It only does it on occasion. But this is a serious problem.
